INTRODUCTION
"Come here to Mummy, come here..."
In Praise of Bulgarian Ritual, Traditional Festive Life
Before opening this book it could be recommended to listen again to at least one CD album of "The Mystery of Bulgarian Voices". It would be also good to pause for a while in the process of reading and to hear again and again the voices of the singers, the overall sounding of the Mystery - the characters of the FOLLOWING PAGES. This does not mean that the book written by Elena Bozhkova does not have its individual value and should be accepted as an original catalogue or album accompanying the musical records released. It is the reading itself that will provoke this internal necessity and will rouse again the desire to listen to the famous songs of the Mystery that have been sounding all over the world, nowadays interweaved with the music of many world famous composers and performers. The perception will be quite new and enriched after giving a meaning to the forms of self-consciousness of the art of Elena Bozhkova and of the others from the Mystery.
Obviously today with the development of the new worldwide trends in the ethno-music the already classical Bulgarian folk songs (with more or less composers' intervention and different type of arrangement) and the magnificent authors' songs with traditional folk sounding, are put in a different cultural context. Probably we, the present Bulgarians, not always being quite enthusiastic heralds of a profound folk consciousness though, we are not in position to immediately notice this new perspective and to immediately understand this new passion of the audience throughout the world - also concerning the Bulgarian songs of the Mystery. For us they are something native, a kind of "nature", something inherited and "reproduced". In one of our conversations, however, Elena Bozhkova told me something about the purpose of the world fashion for ethno-music: "It enables integration into world culture." However, here we can turn the perspective upside down. Some decades ago each national folklore used to have a kind of reserved place in the world "museum" of culture. Nowadays, the multi-cultural environment creates more powerful and more complex competition. Nowadays, one should really raise his voice to be heard, and the fashion for the ethno-music does not mean that all the voices will be remembered and recognized. And this is actually the good chance of the Bulgarian folk music, and especially of the genius music of the Mystery. We, the Bulgarians, strongly believed in the power and uniqueness of Bulgarian folklore but that belief was somehow naive and resembled nationalistic haughtiness. Nowadays, after the explicit international success of the Mystery and other ensembles and individual musicians this belief is further approved, it is not any more the blind belief in the small national community but it is rather specified and has turned into knowledge of uniqueness recognized also by the others instead of being just peculiarity, undisputable super value and super sense.
All this is extensively covered by Elena Bozhkova in her complexly composed and subjected chapters of the book. The travel notes about the decades of the Mystery's performances in world culture capitals, in exotic or more rationally inhabited cultural environments; about the hundreds of meetings with gently exalted or traditional admirers of their art, of Bulgarian folklore, are not self-centered search for a showy image of the work. Usually each story is personally dedicated to one of the female singers, with a background presenting the native scenery, intimate environment, the garden of flowers, the family folk environment (this is the beginning of the stories about Nadezda Hvoyneva, Vasilka Andonova, Olga Borisova - described as "just stepped down from the pictures of........
